CFHS Band Family:
A cool indoor marching opportunity has started in our region, and it takes place just down the road with people we know and love!
Join high school-aged students from around Northwestern Wisconsin with "Fleurish Winds", a WGI Winds indoor marching band.
They have another open rehearsal this Saturday from 12-9pm at Baldwin-Woodville High School (we've been there!) with Adam Bassak (we know him!) and Brad Tilley (we know him!)
and Mike Marcantano (what is this?!?) all being on staff.
If you are looking for an opportunity this winter to grow as a marching performer and overall musician, THIS IS IT.
If you say "why can't marching band be all year long", THIS IS IT.
If you want to stay active and become a boss-level musician, THIS IS IT.
(Sorry for the grammar.)
Let me know if you have questions. I know this experience will be rewarding for you.
Our truckload of fruit will be delivered and ready for distribution on Wednesday, December 13th. All you have to do is check off order forms and make sure the students are taking the right boxes for what they ordered. Easy!! If you are free from 2:45-4:45 pm on Wednesday, Decemer 13th please sign up to help.
Here's the sign up: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0b44a5a72ea3f58-...
Wear warm clothes as the doors will be open and it could get chilly!

"... Chi-Hi Pep Band provides the best atmosphere in the BRC..."
It's beginning to look a lot like... BASKETBALL PEP BAND!
Below is the schedule for BRC basketball games that the pep band is currently on the books to perform during.
Students earn points towards an Academic Letter in Band for each pep band performance that they attend. Sometimes, there are additional perks for playing in the pep band such as free food and other goodies. We ask that every student try and attend 6 games so that we can have a great representation of our band program and our school as we take on our other BRC opponents.
Students should plan to arrive and be ready to rock in the band room by 6:45pm. Game time varies, so pay attention to announcements in class!
